Yahoo Mail Beta Won’t Load

June 15, 2007

I’ve been having lots of problems loading Yahoo mail lately. It started with Firefox 2.0.0.4. All of a sudden I just couldn’t get past the login screen. Nothing would display. Nothing in the source, no errors. Just nothing. So I started using IE to read Yahoo mail. Then I upgraded to IE7, and Yahoo Mail became unstable again. Random HTTP errors. So it became unusable again. I cleared my cookies, cache, and removed my adblocker extensions. It just got worse and worse.

So yesterday I logged in on my trusty Mac, and switched from the Yahoo Beta to the standard Yahoo. I’m back in business everywhere now. What a shame. I hate the old style, but it’s the only version that works.

I’ll just have to use Gmail as my main free email now, and relegate Yahoo to the spam email system.
